Join Cumbrian author Mike Craven as he launches Body Breaker; the sequel to 2015’s hugely successful crime novel, Born in a Burial Gown. Mike will be in conversation with award-winning Scottish Noir author and poet, Michael J. Malone, author of the Ray McBain/Kenny O’Neill crime series and the critically acclaimed A Suitable Lie.
Copies of Body Breaker will be available on the night.
Investigating a severed hand found on the 3rd green of a Cumbrian golf course was not how Detective Inspector Avison Fluke had planned to spend his Saturday. So when a secretive unit from London swoop in quoting national security, he’s secretly pleased.
But trouble is never far away. A young woman arrives at his lakeside cabin with a cryptic message: a code known to only a handful of people and it forces Fluke back into the investigation he’s just been barred from.
In a case that will change his life forever, Fluke immerses himself in a world of new age travellers, corrupt cops and domestic extremists. Before long he’s alienated his entire team, made a pact with the devil and been arrested under the terrorism act.
But Fluke is only getting started. A voice has called out to him from beyond the grave and he has no intention of ignoring it.
“Everything you want in a British procedural: a dark world, a tangled case, a clear and logical solution, and a deeply flawed hero who’s still well worth rooting for.” KIRKUS REVIEWS
“Among the many fictional police detectives beset by grave personal and professional stresses, Fluke and his team standout.” PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
“A forceful new voice in British crime fiction.” CARO RAMSAY (author of the Anderson and Costello novels)
“Fluke is my favourite fictional detective.” MICHAEL J. MALONE (author of the Ray McBain novels)
